Why are leaks so dangerous?


$ 257M 

This is the annual waste of money on gas leaks

According to Greenpeace independent estimation, natural gas losses, related to its leaks, can comprise up to 10% along the path from the production field to the customer.

Explosion and fire hazards

We often hear the news concerning about explosions at industrial facilities and residential buildings due to natural gas leaks. As for industrial facilities, explosions can lead to casualties, process flow disruption, and incapacitation of expensive equipment.

In apartment houses, it can also cause fatalities and substantial material losses of the aggrieved and their neighbors. After such accidents, buildings are officially considered as no longer residential premises and are subject to demolition.

Greenhouse effect

The world community in general and the Russian government in particular are seriously concerned about the global climate change, and that is reflected in periodic enhancement of hazardous substances emissions regulations.

Methane is a greenhouse gas. According to the estimation of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), methane’s contribution to warming due to the greenhouse effect has been 84 times more than carbon dioxide over the last 20-year period.

Detector operation patented algorithm


Our laser detector operation principle was patented in 2006. It allows getting superb sensitivity readings.

Operation principle


  • Methane cloud
    Detector operation pattern

    The remote laser detector measures methane concentration in the air. The laser beam (having the wavelength, which corresponds to methane absorption line) reflects from a topographic object (the ground, a wall, etc.), which is 493 ft away from the device and returns into the receiving channel of the optical system. Concentration is measured along laser emission and is displayed in a relative value, i.e. ppm×m.

  • Signal correlation
    Signal in the analytical channel
    The signal in the analytical channel in case methane molecules are present in the laser beam.
    Сигнал в реперном канале
    Signal in the reference channel (the line shape after methane absorption).

    Vehicle Mounted Gas Leak Detection Vehicle Methane Detector.

    American office was founded for promotion of proprietary developments on the North American market.

  • 2006

    We obtained the U.S. Authority’s approval for flight inspection of main gaslines (we tested ALMA at the area of Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center).

    A remote vehicle-based methane detector was developed, which expanded the capabilities of SELMA mobile laboratory.
